New MAD and MIR program

SOLVE, an automatic Multiple Anomolous Dispersion (MAD) and Multiple Isomophous Replacement (MIR) structure determination program, can carry out complete structure determination files to final phases, for either MIR or MAD data. The program is also installed at synchrotron beam lines (NSLS X-8c and X-12c; SSRL 7-1 and 9-1) so you can be sure that the data was o.k. while at the beamline. The site at www.solve.lanl.gov has some examples of command and output from SOLVE runs on real structures.
